Access to and storage of information in terminal equipment
By using our website, information (e.g. IP address) may be accessed or stored (e.g. cookies) in your terminal equipment. This access or storage may involve further processing of personal data within the meaning of the GDPR.
In cases where such access to information or such storage of information is absolutely necessary for the technically error-free provision of our services, this is done on the basis of Section 25 (1) Sentence 1, (2) No. 2 TTDSG.
In cases where such a process serves other purposes (e.g. the needs-based design of our website), this will only be carried out on the basis of Section 25 (1) TTDSG with your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time for the future.
For more information on the processing of your personal data and the relevant legal basis in this context, please refer to the following sections on the specific processing activities on our website.
This website is hosted by an external service provider (Scaleway). The hosting of this website takes place in the Netherlands. Personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster’s servers. This may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, web page accesses and other data generated via a website.
We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider in accordance with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO, in which we oblige the provider to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.
Server log files
When you call up our website, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status
- Web browser and operating system used
- (Complete) IP address of the requesting computer
- Amount of data transferred
We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection setup of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file serves the evaluation of system security and stability as well as administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data or the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short time. On the basis of this data, it is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons. After 30 days
at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user.
In addition, the data is processed in anonymous form for statistical purposes, if necessary. This data is never stored together with other personal data of the user, compared with other data or passed on to third parties.
Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your terminal device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or an automatic solution is provided by your web browser.
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or language settings). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertising.
Technically necessary cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services. Other cookies are only stored with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time for the future. The legal basis may also arise from Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, or for the performance of pre-contractual measures that are carried out at the request of the data subject.
If cookies are used for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this separately within the framework of this data protection declaration and obtain your consent.

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website with regular information about our offers and products, we require your e-mail as mandatory information.
Additional data may be provided in order to address you personally in the newsletter and/or to identify you if you wish to exercise your rights as a data subject.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will only send you our newsletter by e-mail if you have expressly confirmed that you consent to the sending of newsletters. In the first step, you will receive an e-mail with a link that you can use to confirm that you, as the owner of the corresponding e-mail address, wish to receive future newsletters. With the confirmation, you give us your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO that we may use your personal data for the purpose of the desired newsletter dispatch.
When you register for the newsletter, we store, in addition to the e-mail address required for sending, the IP address through which you registered for the newsletter, as well as the date and time of registration and confirmation, in order to be able to trace any possible misuse at a later date.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link included in each newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the responsible person named above. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted immediately from our newsletter distribution list, unless you have expressly consented to the continued use of the collected data or the continued processing is otherwise permitted by law.
Our email newsletter is sent via a technical service provider, to whom we pass on the data you provided when registering for the newsletter. We have concluded an order processing contract with our e-mail service provider, in which we oblige him to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.
Service Provider: Mailchimp
Address: Rocket Science Group, LLC, 657 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
Standard data protection clauses: We have concluded standard data protection clauses with the provider based in the USA pursuant to Art. 46 (2) lit. c DSGVO in order to ensure an appropriate level of data protection. https://mailchimp.com/legal/data-processing-addendum/
The service provider uses the information from the newsletter registration to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For the evaluation, the sent emails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analysed whether a pre-defined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is only collected pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, which you give in the course of the newsletter registration.
If you wish to revoke your consent to data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
